Hamish Woodward

Check out our list of the history of the AEW Tag Team Championships, listing ever AEW Tag Team Champion in history.

The tag team division has been a key selling point of AEW since its formation in 2019.

The Young Bucks seemed determined to make the tag team titles as big as the world title when they signed for AEW, and they certainly did their best.

The lineage of the AEW Tag Team Championships is one of the most prestigious in AEW history, perhaps only being best by the AEW World Championship.

With former world champions and legendary teams holding the titles, they are considered some of the most prestigious titles in all wrestling.

The AEW Tag Team Championships were revealed by The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express on AEW Dynamite in 2019, as seen below:
